Workers unload bushel baskets of live blue crabs into a large carriage before pressure-steaming them at the A.E. Phillips & Son Inc. crab-picking house on Hooper's Island in Fishing Creek, Maryland, on August 26, 2015 (photo released October 13). Young people in the small rural shore towns of Chesapeake Bay, which straddles the eastern U.S. states of Maryland and Virginia, are shunning the erratic pay of “watermen,” who catch crabs using skills, such as baiting a crab pot or handling a trotline, previously passed down through the generations. Seasonal workers from Mexico fill many of the manual jobs in picking houses to process the crustaceans. Last year’s harvest was the lowest recorded in 25 years after the crab population crashed in the 1990s and early 2000s.

Palestinian protesters put out a fire burning on a compatriot, caused by a molotov cocktail that he was trying to hurl at Israeli troops during clashes in the West Bank city of Hebron on October 13, 2015. At the time this photo was taken, 7 Israelis and 27 Palestinians, including nine alleged attackers and eight children, had died in almost two weeks of street attacks and security crackdowns. The violence has been stirred in part by Muslim anger over increasing Jewish visits to the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound in Jerusalem, Islam's holiest site outside the Arabian Peninsula.

An aerial view of a field called the “New Jungle,” with tents and makeshift shelters where migrants and asylum-seekers stay, is seen in Calais, France, in this picture taken on October 1, 2015. The number of migrants in the Calais camp on France's north coast has doubled to close to 6,000 people, the prefect for the region said on October 16, 2015. Migrants fleeing war and poverty in Africa and the Middle East are camped on the French side of the tunnel in Calais, trying to board vehicles heading for Britain via the tunnel and on ferries or by walking through the tunnel, even though security measures aimed at keeping them out have been stepped up.
